I convinced my boss to use MariaDB for a new project but it appears

looked at the alternatives listed on the website, but they are all
either proprietary or Windows only. I just can't sell my boss on
switching to MariaDB without workbench.

Free software isn't free, but I think Workbench is a big driver of
commercial and enterprise use. It's easy to kvetch from the outside,
but I feel as though MariaDB has just lost some ground.

Has management considered forking Workbench?
